      Ducks' Mike Santorelli: Nets first goal as a Duck

      Santorelli scored his first of the season in Anaheim's 4-1 win over Minnesota on Sunday. The goal comes on the heels of being a healthy scratch in Friday's loss to the Avs. Santorelli skated on Anaheim's fourth line alongside Patrick Maroon and Shawn Horcoff on Sunday, a line that packs a little bit of everything from grit to speed and skill. While the third period tally was a nice thing for the line, don't expect the scoring to continue with much reliability in the coming weeks.

      Analysis: Mike Santorelli will likely slot into a bottom-six role with the Ducks, providing the team with some depth up front. He was a solid producer for Nashville and Toronto last season, registering 33 points (12 goals, 21 assists) in 79 games between the two teams.

    • Preds' Santorelli Struggling In New Role

      News: Mike Santorelli was held off the scoresheet for the fifth straight game during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings.
      Analysis: Mike Santorelli has not made much of an impact offensively since joining the Preds via trade back in mid-February, however as a bottom-six forward, scoring is not really what he was brought in to do. What he is seeing, however, is regular ice time, something he was not getting during his final weeks in Toronto. Since his arrival in Nashville, he has been averaging 12-13 minutes per game playing on the third line alongside Colin Wilson and Calle Jarnkrok. He is a useful piece of the puzzle as far as the Preds are concerned, but he is unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact down the stretch and into the playoffs.
